About the Book
With the valuable assistance of Professor Ali Djerbi, they spent one week documenting the extraordinary white mosques that dot the landscape of Djerba, thought to be the mysterious island of the lotus-eaters in the tales of the Odyssey.
The resulting hand drawings document the intimate mosque structures where the profane, the poetic and the sacred exist side by side.
